Reflection And Renewal Min

Remote is a digital product studio based in Shropshire, UK.

We are our people. If you have a genuine love for all things digital design, are keen to take on a mix of design challenges and are comfortable working in a fast-paced studio environment, we want to hear from you. We’re ideally looking for a middleweight or above, but if you're a talented junior, be bold. Join our established, innovative, fast-moving digital product studio.

We’re looking for a UI/UX designer to join our team. You have exceptional design skills generally, with the ability to create innovative interfaces for digital products.

You've got

  • A creative portfolio
  • Preferably 2+ years of commercial experience
  • Proficient using sketch and the adobe suite
  • A focus on creative web and mobile design
  • A passion for UI/UX design and testing
  • An understanding of technical constraints and possibilities
  • A positive attitude to self-learning
  • A team player nature

Our projects

Our projects typically fall into three areas:

Digital products – web applications and mobile apps - This will be your core area.

Design-led websites – visually beautiful websites

Product development/research – concept development, emerging design trends and user testing

When you're in the office, you’ll be working in a sociable, open-plan environment in Shrewsbury, with a supportive development team in a great culture.

Most of the team at Remote work three days in the office and two days from home; the others work 5 days in the office. We're also open to this role being a fully remote position.

About the company

We're an established digital product studio working on an eclectic mix of custom web applications and apps for clients worldwide. From start-ups to international brands like Sony, Volvo, Tesco and Volkswagen Group.

In addition to our client work, we also have several in-house digital projects and are building our own SaaS platform.

We invest in your career development with the tools, kit and learning opportunities you need to be the best developer and team member you can be.

Role

As a mid - senior-level designer, you’ll be working with an experienced, close-knit team of strategists, creatives and developers who learn and grow together.

You’ll be involved in every part of the design process, including strategy sessions with clients, idea development, building wireframes and prototypes, designing interfaces and working with our developers on final delivery.

Beyond the basics – typography, interaction and human-centred design – the thing we’re looking for most is the ability to deliver elegant, innovative, pixel-perfect interface designs that will set our clients' products above the rest.

Most of your work will be on greenfield web application projects for clients, designing brands and products from the ground up. The rest of your time will be spent visualising new features for existing applications and mobile apps, including our in-house web platforms, and curating our profile across our communications, social and website.

Salary and benefits: Our remuneration package includes a competitive salary and above-law benefits, including 32 paid days off per year (*plus your birthday!) and a great company pension. And, of course, bean-to-cup coffee and a stocked kitchen will keep you fuelled while you work side-by-side with other talented, committed, enthusiastic members of a growing team.

Attitude

The ideal person in this role will match the values of our existing team; smart and quick to use your initiative, with a lot of drive, a natural love of development and good-natured when working in a team.

You’ll be happy to share your opinions and experience, suggest solutions to challenges and support others. You’ll be keen to learn new methods and tools, develop your skills and master your craft in a supportive environment. You’ll be happy to work hard in a team, determined to do the best you can to make sure the project journey is enjoyable for everyone involved.

  • Be part of a talented, supportive, dynamic Agile Scrum team
  • Analyse design briefs, user needs, and business requirements

  • Work with developers for handover and design review
  • Participate in design research, user research and validation testing
  • Participate in the communication of your work to the client
  • Work within and respect a client’s brand but also adapt and evolve it to current digital standards.
  • Work on multiple projects simultaneously
  • Work on a large variety of different projects in a wide range of industries
  • Bring systems thinking to create robust design systems that can scale effectively

Bonus points if you have experience in:

Environment

The studio is based in the town centre of Shrewsbury, one of the finest market towns in England. Lockdown has proven how well we work remotely, and so we're open to applications from those who would prefer to work remotely, as well as those who love the energy of working with a team in an open-plan office.

We provide an open, friendly and collaborative working environment, where teammates solve challenges together, share knowledge, present to each other on emerging trends in technology, software engineering and self-development.

Culture

Dress: We dress how we like in the studio - it’s important that we all feel comfortable while we work - and only brush up for meetings and if we have a client visiting.

Flexibility: Outside of lockdowns, we work together as a team in the studio most days. We’ve learnt to be flexible over lockdown, so don’t mind if you want to work from home occasionally.

Location: We’re a 5-minute walk from the centre of Shrewsbury, just across the river, by the Theatre and right next to Frankwell car park, which means you’ll always find it easy to get to work. A couple of our team members cycle, and there are also bike racks in the studio.

Remote or hybrid working for this role is also an option. Ideally, you'd live close enough to join the studio for the odd team event, but it's not essential, as long as you're in our timezone, so that you can work in sync with the rest of the team.

Our values

Our success starts and ends with our team. We aim to inspire our people and connect to how what we do has a larger impact on our clients, their teams, and their communities.

We’re a growing, supportive and collaborative team, working together to build exciting and innovative projects. The great thing about joining a company like ours is that there are lots of opportunities to learn and directions for your career to grow, depending on your interests, where you excel and what you aspire to be.

Our core values guide and influence everything we do:

  • Comradery - We are in it together and have the good of the company, our clients and the wider community at heart;
  • Mastery - We aim to reach the highest standards, personally and professionally and share knowledge to create an environment of learning and growth;
  • Adventure - We push outside of our comfort zone with curiosity, explore what’s possible and enjoy the ride;
  • All-in - We are confident in our decisions and committed to seeing through projects to a successful outcome.
